Market Exploration trip „Journey into the future – Architecture and Interior Design in Denmark”

27. June 2013

Austrian architects and managers visited Copenhagen for a showcase of Danish architecture and interior design at its best

From 12 June 2013 to 14 June 2013, 13 participants from 11 different Austrian enterprises participated in an inspiring market exploration trip „Journey into the future – Architecture and Interior Design in Denmark” to Copenhagen, organized by AdvantageAustria. The aim of this event was firstly to give architects, construction enterprises and interior design specialists an overview of the newest developments in Danish architecture and secondly to give the participants the opportunity to network and to get into contact with decision makers, experts and project managers.

After a “Copenhagen by Night – Warming Up” the program comprised a guided tour through the exhibition “Your Harbour” at the Danish Architecture Center, a boat trip “modern architecture” guided by an architect, a guided tour through the urban development area “Ørestad” as a playground for architects and landscape planners. Here, the group had the chance to enjoy an inspiring presentation about one of the world-beating apartment houses by BIG Architects. Other program points were a visit to Rambøll, an highly inspiring “Austrian Business Circle” with Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner (the first woman to climb all 8.000 m peaks in the world without supplementary oxygen, as special guest), the key planner of the urban development area “North Harbour” (COBE Architects), the development company “City and Port” as well as the urban development area “Carlsberg”, Louis Poulsen Lamps and HAY Interior. The participants left Copenhagen visibly inspired.
